ADHD, usually first diagnosed in childhood, is a far reaching disorder. It affects multiple aspects of a child's life, including the academic, social, emotional, and familial arenas. Research indicates that parents and caregivers of children who have ADHD are at risk for a plethora of interpersonal difficulties such as depression, alcoholism, lower parenting self-esteem, a greater sense of isolation, and an increase in prevalence of psychiatric disorders---among other problems (Befera a Barkley, 1985; Cantwell, 1972; Chronis, Chacko, Fabiano, Wymbs, a Pelham, 2003; Cunningham, Benness, a Siegel, 1988; Mash a Johnston, 1982). Parents experiencing such difficulties become prone to harsh parenting practices, which can set into motion cyclical negative interactions between parents and children. Parenting groups have long been utilized as a resource for parents in need of psychoeducation and social support. Relaxation techniques can decrease stress levels, help maintain a state of calmness, and reduce anxiety. Yet a psychoeducational, support and relaxation group for parents of children with ADHD is virtually nonexistent. To meet this need, Oasis, a stress management caregiver program, was developed and a pilot implementation was completed. Although not a clinical trial of the efficacy of the Oasis program, the program is detailed and preliminary data regarding its implementation is described.Chapter 4: Results of the Pilot Program Quantitative Data Parenting Stress Index/ Short Form (PSI/SF) To determine if a clinically significant level of ...
